Summary: Neville and Luna's last night before Christmas of their seventh year. Canon compliant because, you know, it could have happened that way!
That was really sweet. I've always loved this pairing, and it's sad how few people actually write about it. They...go together, I think. Luna's so spontaneous and carefree. She's good for him.
I loved how you wrote it, too. It flows really good...although I wish you'd described Luna's violin playing some.
To the tune of O Little Town of Bethlehem, join the Marauders on one of their monthly nights on the town.
This Song Poem won the Poetry Anyone Carol Challenge on the Beta Boards. Yay!
This is good!
I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for reading and dropping in to let me know what you thought!
Summary: At the age of five, Dean Thomas experienced his best Christmas, made memorable by the man who would become his stepfather. Twelve years later, he is bereft of his family with only a handful of near-strangers to keep him company. Will he find any Christmas cheer?
This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my story for the Great Halliday Challenge - prompt 2 Christmas at Ground Zero.
I am not JK Rowling. She is sublime; I merely beg crumbs from her fanfiction table.
This story really is something else! I agree with the other reviewers, missing moment stories will always have a special place for me. I'm actually writing one myself now about the third book in Sirius' POV because of how much I just HATE all the blanks left about that time period! Though, I think my stories always end up a bit too deep or heavy. But I haven't really gotten a review yet so no opinions on that. I love how you got all that in without drawing out the drama like how I always find myself doing. Guess that's the great thing about Fanfiction though isn't it? Even though we're all writing under one authors book siries we can all write with different styles and tastes and no matter what those are it still manages to share these special moments. I want to thank you for that. Not many people do the minor characters like this and I love how you made it seem like someone we could really know or meat. Man, why do I always ramble and go off on these rabbit trails? XD
I'll stop now or it'll keep going all day! Anyway, again I'm so glad you wrote this and so glad I clicked on it. Maybe one day I'll catch this many reviewers! Keep writing and make J.K. proud!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply. I think Missing Moments are great things to read and write about too. I wrote this, really, because I've always been curious about Dean and felt we didn't get enough of his back story in the books. I hope JK would approve but I know she doesn't like football much - ha ha. Thanks again ~Carole
Summary: Ginny and her brothers sneak down the stairs to look at presents, but instead, Ginny discovers something wonderful about magic.
Written for the Yuletide Challenge, Bonus Prompt. It received a Special Mention. :) Nominated for a 2014 QSQ for Best Poetry!
This is so sweet. I love this!
Author's Response: Thank you! After a hard day at work, I just wanted to collapse and not even think about anything... But your review has just made my day better! Keep reading! ~Nagini
Summary: A song for the first Christmas after the Battle of Hogwarts.
Based on the traditional carol, Personent Hodie.
Oh. My. Gosh. That was amazing! I literally shivered reading this little piece and I can't think of anything bad to say. This is what's so great about fanfiction. No matter what the style or kind of fic we are all united by our love for writing and Harry Potter! Keep up the work and I'll try to do the same.
Author's Response: Thank you very much!
Summary: After the R/Hr argument at the end of the Yule Ball, Christmas 1994 goes even more badly for Ron when Dean, Seamus and Neville bring up the argument, and try to analyze the motives behind it. Also features destruction of the Krum figurine!
It's pretty good, and entertaining...although in some places you could work on wording and making it smoother. Try not to use the same describing word more then once in the same few sentences. I noticed this most at the beginning.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. It's early days, so always room for improvement. Also, thanks for the constructive criticism. Always need feedback :)
Summary: It is 1980, and a lot of people are looking for Lily Potter. Who will find her first?
It was really good, and I love stories about Lily. Something I noticed, however, was that sometimes you were a bit too descriptive...if that makes since. It interrupted the flow and made some parts jarring. Although, maybe it was just me. I'm not entirely sure...
Author's Response: I often think I write too much dialogue, so in this one I tried to beef up the descriptions. Did I overdo it? -N-
